Mealthy Tip

This dessert is great for entertaining since much of it can be prepped days in advance: the pears can be baked up to three ahead and chilled until you plan to serve them. Simply rewarm in a 325° oven until heated through, about 10 minutes. Make the whipped ricotta a few days ahead too, and refrigerate until ready to use.

My wife bought a bunch of pears, so we decided to use what was leftover to make this recipe. The ricotta and granola topping was really good. Really delicious as a breakfast or dessert.

I made this recipe and it was so really delicious! Eating dessert does not always have to equal fat and carbs! This was light and flavorful. I especially loved the honey whipped ricotta, which was phenomenal together with the pears. The granola on the top was like icing in the cake!

We had some leftover pears and decided to make this recipe. It was really easy and the pears turned out great. The whipped ricotta and granola on top were fantastic. Next time I'll probably double the batch!
